Danny DeVito, Treehugger!
Actor Danny DeVito was honored with the 2,445th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, and while on the famous Boulevard for the event, he stopped to take some time to...hug a tree!What prompted DeVito to show a little arbor love? It could be the sheer delight felt by the "Taxi," and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" star to be getting his star on the sidewalk, or, as the timing of the ceremony suggests, the upcoming release of season six of the latter on DVD.
In addition to roles in "L.A. Confidential," "Romancing the Stone," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "Get Shorty," and more, DeVito recently had a voice-over role "stumping" for the trees in the Seuss pro-eco movie The Lorax, which could explain why he's showing this Hollywood trunk a lil' affection.
DeVito seemed to be in his typical quirky mood today, notes the Daily News:
Putting a new twist on the tradition of having the honoree be the first person to step on the sidewalk star, DeVito took off a shoe and sock stood on his star with one bare foot.
The latest star on the Walk of Fame is located in front of the Hollywood Experience Store.
